Incentive Solutions, a channel incentive management technology provider, has acquired through-channel marketing solutions and services vendor OneAffiniti to create a company that can provide seamless channel engagement experiences across major product categories.
Like other companies, Incentive Solutions is leaning into collaboration and co-innovation to redefine the scope of offering, increase product portfolio and develop powerful technology integrations, it said in a press release. Incentive Solutions will look to make further acquisitions and investments in the business to build a leading and complete channel marketing solution.
“This partnership is a direct response to frequent requests from both OneAffiniti and Incentive Solutions customers for more comprehensive product offerings,” says Mark Herbert, CEO of Incentive Solutions, in a statement to Channel Marketer Report. “As a combined entity, our goal is to become one of the global leaders in the channel marketing space with a really innovative, holistic offering for the channel.”
At the core of this acquisition is the shared mission to center partner relationships and provide support through dedicated teams. This requires the shift from standalone technologies to streamlined offerings to provide efficient, valuable solutions for brands and their channel partners.
“The coming together of these businesses will accelerate innovation,” said Montgomery. “The technologies will soon talk seamlessly with one another as we develop sophisticated APIs, and this will dramatically improve user experience.”
